'Miles Bron was incredibly dumb': Internet floats new 'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery' theory
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: After Rian Johnson stunned the world with an extraordinary whodunnit 'Knives Out' in 2019, the filmmaker decided to turn the movie into a franchise and came forward with the sequel 'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story'. The Netflix movie has Daniel Craig reprising his role of Detective Benoit Blanc while travelling to Greece for another adventure. The movie released on Netflix on December 23, 2022, and has already become one of the biggest hits for the streaming platform. Ever since the release, the internet has been coming up with theories of their own, one of the most recent ones being that the character of Miles Bron (played by Edward Norton) was "incredibly dumb" and "technologically illiterate."
'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story', the second movie in the 'Knives Out' franchise, sees Blanc receiving a maze which is an invitation to a "murder mystery party" on a remote island. However, he is not alone and is joined by some of the popular faces in their respective fields. The invitation has been sent by tech billionaire Bron and he has called everyone to solve his murder mystery. However, things get weird when an actual murder happens.
A Reddit user came up with the theory that Miles Bron was "technologically illiterate" and this explained why he used old technology. "Miles doesn't use old technology because he's an eccentric tech guru, but because he's technologically illiterate. This is a pretty clear cut theory, as we find out that Miles is incredibly dumb, so it would only make sense that his "eccentricity" around using a fax machine is because he doesn't know how to use a smartphone or understand modern technology," the user wrote. wrote the user.
Another user added, "My thought as well. His whole house is automated so he's not actually scared of tech or anything. He's just a moron." Adding on, a user stated, "Yeah that checks out. Miles is a brain dead thief so it'd make sense he's too dumb to use a smart phone." Another user chimed in, "I think it's less that he's dumb (because he definitely is) and more that he's so rich and exasperated by learning something new that he simply chooses not to. Others accept it because he pays them to enable his behavior, and it looks like a quirky billionaire genius thing when really he's just making the world conform to his comfort rather than adapting."
One user even made a reference to the "iPhone joke" from the previous movie, saying, "Wasn't it the iPhone joke? That apple doesn't let bad guys use iphones? Ransom is the murderer in the first film because he uses an android and everyone else has iPhones. In this film, everyone has androids, but Miles has a fax machine."
A user questioned, "How did he help everyone achieve everything in their careers before they became rich tho? He had to be somewhat competent tho." To this another user replied, "Though did he? We see that after Andi introduced them to Miles things started happening and everyone attributes their successes to Miles but we never actually see if he was responsible. Additionally it might be that while he is an idiot and inept with technology he is still competent at other things predominantly socializing, knowing who to talk to and how to get them to do what he wants and how to claim credit for it in the end."
